GAA as source of creatine

Creamino is a patent protected preparation of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA). GAA is the direct endogenous precursor of creatine in the organism of all vertebrates. The body produces GAA from the amino acids glycine and arginine, and creatine from GAA and methionine. Creatine is an essential biomolecule for proper function of energy transfer and supply. Creatine levels in the body can be improved by approx. 20-30 %. In contrast to other nutrients creatine directly reloads ATP for energy supply and prevents formation of reactive oxygen substances in times of high energy demand. Therefore, creatine is of primary importance in places with high energy need, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain, sperm and immune cells. Creatine is a natural constituent in meat or fish, but does not sustain extensive heat treatment during rendering.

With Creamino, we supply a unique source of creatine that replaces dietary creatine and spares arginine.

 

Guanidinoacetic acid – precursor of creatine fomed from Arginine and Glycine

Creamino contains formulated Guanidino Acetic Acid (GAA), which is administered to the animals via its feed. Normally the body synthesizes GAA which consumes important nutrients and energy. By taking Creamino directly supplemented with the feed this step can be skipped. This direct route ensures an optimal supply with creatine. Ingredients, such as arginine, then become available for other processes (arginine sparing). Creamino improves feed conversion or enables a reduction in the proportion of expensive, energy-rich ingredients (e.g. oil or soya). Further benefits are notably a more robust immune system and therefore a lower mortality rate and increased heat tolerance.

Guanidinoacetic acid is authorised in Europe as a nutritional feed additive, category amino acids, their salts and analogues (category 3c372). In the US, GAA is authorized as a food additive regulated in the Code of Federal Register under 21CFR 573 496. GAA is approved and in use as well in many countries in Latin America, Russia, Southeast Asia, Middle East and Africa. Not all applications shown below are registered in all countries.
